I think you are confusing piCore and piCorePlayer. This thread is not about piCorePlayer.

Hi bmarkus, the link in the first post of this thread appears to be wrong.  Should be release instead of releases.

HI:
After a while I used piCore 6.0 on a 2GB uSD card with a RaspberryPI B and a B+. It boots ok and I have WLAN running. Since I miss my favorite FM pcmanfm I installed Thunar. It installed, showed the yellow space but no icon in wbar. The wbar button inside control panel is "dead" and not clickable.
I am not able to start Thunar from command line nor from the right-click menue on the desktop. Then I installed the newly added midori web browser. Here I have an icon but no start possible.

Questions:
1)  I downloaded my piCore 6.0  image around Feb 8, 2015 - which image should I use? Was this image ever  updated?
2) Would it be better if I switch to 6.1 beta?
3) When do we see the final 6.1 version? (estimation)
4) Should I try pcmanfm from 5.X repo?

Thank you all for answering and helping me.

I will review pcmanFM and Thunar in the repo. In fact, there is a major review is going on related to DE and audio/video.

In general I advice to use the latest 6.1 beta version. Final version is expected in two weeks.

Regarding midori, it works here. Issues:

- webkitgtk JavaScript engine crashes due to a JIT bug not fixed in last 2-3 years
- video support is under test; HTML5 WebM videos are played now, H.264 and others in progress

Visit http://www.quirksmode.org/html5/tests/video.html to see what is working or http://html5demos.com/video just for fun.

There may be a missing dependency. If you start midori in a terminal, what messages you see?

Tested, Thunar starts in command line and works fine. What does it mean you are not able to start?

thanx for the quick response. Installed piCore6.1beta (download from today) on a RaspberryPi B (not B+, not B+2)
Boots ok. wbar button inside control panel still not clickable.

Here are the error messages when I start midori and thunar:
tc@box:~$ thunar
thunar: error while loading shared libraries: libffi.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
tc@box:~$

tc@box:~$ midori
midori: error while loading shared libraries: libharfbuzz-icu.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
tc@box:~$

midori shows icon in bar. Icon just not clickable. Thunar no icon at all.

Suggestion: I would like to see: Dillo and gparted in repo. Dillo is very nice and fast and perfect for text sites such as our forum here.
Dillo has no JavaScript and locked out from Yahoo etc.

thunar depends on libffi.so.6 Looks like your system is not uptodate. Make a clean install and r45echeck.

I have two piCore6.1beta.
1)piCore6.1beta1-X.img
2)piCore6.1beta1_V7-X.img

Which one should I use?
There is a  libffixx but no libffi.so.6  extension in the PiCore 6 repo. I loaded the one  and Thunar still did not start.

There are no such extension as libffixxx in armv6/armv7 6.x repo.

Also, you do not need to deal with it at all as it is a dependency of few generic extensions like glib2.tcz so it is installed and loaded by the system. And you do not share any info on thunar startup error message just sayin doesn't work.

Sorry, I can't help.

OK may by that somebody else can help me.
I posted the errors from midori and thunar in my last post:tc@box:~$ thunar
thunar: error while loading shared libraries: libffi.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
tc@box:~$
tc@box:~$ midori
midori: error while loading shared libraries: libharfbuzz-icu.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
tc@box:~
My repository only shows: libffi.tcz and no  libffi.so.5. It also shows only a harfbuzz.tcz and no libharfbuzz-icu.so.0.

There is no icon for Thunar. When I start thunar from command line I am getting the error message I posted above. I have n other facts to report other than the FM is not starting.
